UEFA Champions League

Manchester United Win Wan Bissaka Champions League Appeal.

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan Bissaka was handed a two-match ban by UEFA after he was sent off against Young Boys for a dangerous tackle against one of the Swiss club players.

Wan Bissaka missed the clash against Villareal at Old Trafford and was replaced by Diogo Dalot. He was set to miss the upcoming game against Atalanta in their third Champions League game, but the latest appeal by the club has handed the fullback the opportunity to feature for the next Champions League game.

We can recall that Wan Bissaka was initially given a one-match ban for rough play, but it was later extended. Speaking after the ban, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said "I am shocked. "Yeah, we are going to hand an appeal because he ends up with an almost three-game ban. 

"If you look at other tackles in the Champions League, I can't see any reason why he should have two games or almost three as I said."

The good news is that Wan Bissaka will now be in contention for the game against Atalanta in Italy.
